Prayut expresses concern over country’s image after extortion of Taiwan celeb


To build confidence amidst the public and tourists, Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha ordered concerned agencies to look into the extortion claim against the Taiwanese actress, stressing that true offenders must be punished without exception.

“This problem is deep-rooted. We need to separate the good (police) from the bad (police), and true offenders must face punishment” he said. 

When asked whether or not PM Prayut will apologise to the Taiwanese actress as this was demanded by the whistleblowing former politician Chuwit Kamolvisit, he refused to answer the question and strode towards the Thai-Khu-Fah Building.
